    Perhaps the best place is the flies only section of the Pere Marquette River between M37 downstream to Gleason's Landing.

    If you fill out your profile I'll give you a couple of more places.

    The Au Sable below Foote dam is wader friendly and can be productive. The smaller tribs are all wadeable, but are better discussed in a PM. As far as gear, whatever you want to fish will work. Flyfishing is much easier from a boat on the AS, but there are good spots to run from shore. You can fish anywhere with a spinning rig.
